Sticking with the theme of good packing, this week’s wise words come from my friend Amanda, a lady well-practiced in squashing too many things into small suitcases.
Amanda’s best weapon against her suitcase is the unassuming zip-lock bag. Not only are these babies absolutely essential for keeping bottles of liquid at a safe distance from everything else, but they can be used as DIY vacuum-sealed technology.
Simply roll and stuff your clothes in to a large zip-lock bag, seal it almost all the way, squash all the air out, and lock it up. Voila! Your clothes are now flat packed and will take up even less space.
